Self-Edge, the Imperial Shearer would be a good bet for you.

Or the Wrangler cowboy Jean. For real. Forget its numeric designation

ByBeatle Volume 1 jeans. I got mine a week ago and I really like the fit. Seems to match your preferences perfectly.

Hey. So I got my third pair of Flat Head jeans all the same size, but one has stretched out way too loose thighs and waist-I have already done 2 long, hot soaks still too baggy, the other 2 flat heads fit great

 

Does anyone know of another way to shrink them tighter without messing up chances of so nice creases/fades down the road?

post #21065 of 21424
Zap them in the dryer. Ultimate shrinkage, and the only guarantee that fades won't move is to shrink them down to their max now.

That's why it's always smartest to either buy sanforized, or completely shrink them right of the bat. Otherwise you will always be dealing with shrinking/stretching issues.

Hey guys looking into getting a new pair of raws and want to try out a pair of 1947 501s

 

How do you think I should size the waist?

 

In the regular stonewash 501's im a size 29 which fit perfect and my old pair of APC's are a 29

 

Think I should get a 30 or 31 in 1947 501's

Thanks, I will try the dryer, what do you think, another hot soak first the dryer?

Does anyone know if Levi's makes jeans in 30x36L? I'm trying to find a pair of 541's in the "The Rich" wash in 30x36L. Long story short, I bought 30x34L and it shrunk 3/4-1". Length was perfect at 34".

I recently bought a pair of Flat Head 3002 (size 30) unsanforized. I know that you're supposed to soak them before wearing, and that soaking them in cold water will shrink a lot less than in warm or hot water. I was also told by the salesperson to just soak them in cold water instead of warm/hot for minimal shrinkage (insert joke here). However, I don't have a tub, and the thought of sitting in my shower under cold water during winter (I live in Australia) does not appeal to me. Can I just hang the jeans on a clothes hanger under the shower head, or does anyone have any suggestions for someone who does not have a tub to soak their jeans in? Any ideas would be much appreciated, thanks!

Bought these APC New Cures (size 28) not too long ago, and started to wear them again. They definitely fit tight, doable, but from what I understand, they should stretch out some. I've only worn these a handful of times. But the question is, are these too tight? As in, do I look ridiculous in them and should I just abandon them and size up? The waist is fine, but the ass and thighs are a tight squeeze. Just wanted to get some opinions on them. My girlfriend says they don't look too bad and that I should just keep them, but want some unbiased opinions, thanks.

They are the Black Ring ones, so they aren't like the normal Indigo. I have never washed them before, and I'm kind of scared to wash them.

Just get some Woolite Dark or a similar detergent without optical brighteners, turn them inside-out, and machine wash cold on the gentle cycle if you're particularly concerned. Washing your jeans is good for them, not bad or them.

Do you have a top-loading washing machine? You can always fill it up, pause the cycle, and let them soak there. Alternatively, you can buy a utility bucket at a hardware store.

Ah ok, nice idea. Wasn’t sure if the jeans had to lay flat or if they can be bunched up.

Nah, it's just about getting them saturated with water. I usually use something slightly heavy - a ceramic mug, for example - to hold the jeans down so they don't float to the top.

I'm a fan of doing a hot soak or two right off the bat to get out as much shrinkage as possible, but YMMV.

Cool, wasn't sure, but you've definitely cleared things up for me! Thanks!

Yeah those are way too tight.. When the side seam starts revealing non-indigo'd denim because it's being pulled so taught, it's time to move on.
